The campground for this beautiful park stretches along a high levee that separates it from a wide beach and the Gulf of Mexico. There are many paths across the levee along the campground. The campsites are laid out in diagonal rows. They are level and the water and electric hook ups are convenient. The bath houses are very new. The laundry facilities are free. The camp hosts are the most helpful and present of any park we have seen. The park also has a lagoon area where we took our kayaks. The only thing we didn’t like about this park is that you cannot take dogs on the beach. The town of Grand Isle is a collection of fishing “camp” style houses. There really isn’t any beach community vibe to the place. That didn’t matter to us, because we like the less commercial, more natural settings. We stayed here four nights. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

$26 the first night and $20 after the first night. We really liked it because there were not very many people there. Great for fishing and biking. The maintenance guy was extremely kind and friendly. The beach was good except the sand was hard and not as clean as other areas of the gulf. The sites were nice and roomy and the grass was green. One negative thing were the gnats. The laundry is free and restrooms are nice. Overall it was a really good stay. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

Great location to Gulf. Sites are paved pull-throughs, but out in the open. Nothing much to do (other than fish and sun) here in Grand Isle, but if that's what you're looking for this is the place for you. Lots of weekend/summer homes in the area so summertime may be more active. Would have given a 10 if sites were shaded and more secluded. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground on an island seemingly at the end of the earth bordering on the Gulf of Mexico. The seven mile long island is connected to the mainland by a bridge and a long viaduct (LA-1) with a toll of $7.50 one way only, for a motorhome towing a car. There is no toll for north bound vehicles. Rangers and staff are all very friendly and helpful. The campground consists of two rows of pull through sites, widely spaced and separated with grass and palm trees, all well maintained. There is 50/30/20 amp power as well as water but no sewer at each site. A very good dump station is available on the road into the campground. Roads and sites have excellent asphalt paving and are smooth and level. Unfortunately there is a 15 to 20 foot high berm separating the campground from the Gulf with numerous walk through paths for access to the beautiful Gulf waters. The recent hurricane (Isaac) has closed the long fishing pier and lookout tower pending repairs but modern showers, toilets and laundry are available. Verizon cell phone and MiFi are very good as is satellite service. However, if you’re not a fisherman or birder, there is not much to do here unless you are looking for peace and quiet at a reasonable price. By the way, the Louisiana State Park system does not honor Golden Age Passports unless your home state honors the Louisiana cards. Seems fair enough! We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

Pros: The sites are next to beach the and Gulf of Mexico. FREE laundry with modern machines. Many hot, clean showers. Nice hiking trails around saltwater marshes with wildlife. There is a long pier over the Gulf and a lookout tower w/360 degree views. And you cannot beat the price. Cons: There is a loud, low rumble from fishing boats nightly from 10pm - 1am just as you are trying to go to sleep. The night sky is lit up from nearby oil refineries. And though this was likely a glitch, the 30 amp fuse was broken at our site, so we had to move. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. What more can you say. Huge sites, and well maintained. The beach was closed during our visit but I understand it is now open. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great park. They are working on second bath house. The current bath house is new and very nice. Fishing pier also looks new and is great. Staff and hosts were wonderful. Beach is cleaned daily, but you still pick up some tar balls on your shoes. Pelicans and dolphins daily. Wi-Fi was solid. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A really nice state park. The site are excellent; all are pull through with asphalt pads, picnic tables, and fire rings. The sites are level making for easy setup. Both 30 and 50 amp service are available. It is a way from interstate 10, and it takes awhile to drive down there. I would certainly make reservations before going. We stayed there 6 nights in a 5th wheel. I would stay there again. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice state park! We were there during very bad weather, so we did not get to do very much exploring, but the park was nice, and we would recommend it especially if you enjoy fishing! We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

The sites are suitable for large rigs. The Bath house was very well maintained. However the fishing pier, lagoon, lookout tower and crabbing pier remained closed due to BP still occupying all of these areas. Fishing was allowed on beach only by boat. The park security was very good making rounds quite often through the park. The only minus is the grass could of been cut more often and mosquitoes were very bad. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Love the park but really upset about the OIL CRISIS! The pier is finally finished and looks great, just can't fish! People have always been nice, the hosts are always nice. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Truck Camper.

This is a great park, the fishing pier is one of the nicest piers that i have fished. The bathrooms/showers were spotless. The campground has fire rings we were told that they didn't have them. Overall its a great park with nice clean beaches and a laid back atmosphere. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Travel Trailer.

All large pull-through sites with 30/50amp and water. No waterview sites, but the Gulf is directly across the sand dune from the park. Clean, peaceful and relaxing, we would stay here again. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a very scenic place to camp at and the drive there was interesting too. They were allowing overnight campers to access the beach because they were still working on the levee after hurricane damage. The only negative in my view was the lack of any shade but suspect the hurricane had a part in that. There was only 2 other units camped while I was there and the quiet along with the endless beach was priceless. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.
